Correct me if I'm wrong here, but can't you only get a Great Person if you have their Tech. I only need Imhotep, who requires Ceremonial Burial, and Sargon, who requires Bronze Working. So... if I go into a game and only research those two techs (+Pottery since you need it for CB), shouldn't they be the only two, other than the guy who needs Pottery, that would unlock? Why am I getting all these other guys instead?

You should probably consult this thread

This subject is discussed at length (over 3 pages now) and I'm sure it covers what your looking for. Otherwise your starting a extra thread that is just going to make this subject more complicated to search through. Good luck.

Three words for you.

THEY ARE RANDOM.

Yeah, techs don't really mean that much it seems.

I just played and they all came to me, if you "try" to get them, I doubt they'll come to you, just play some games, work on your strategy, and eventually you'll have them all.

I played the game normally and got all of them but one. I came here and read the strats about checking the civlopeida, then trying to set it up where you get the one, and I did actually get the one I needed. The one I needed was Aesop. He was part of greek culture, so I played with the greeks, and got writing, killed my science and focused on culture. I got a first great person, it was pathagoras, and my second great person was aesop. Bam. Achievement.

I believe it's a mix, but if you are down to one or two, try it out.
